Status: Gathering Kudos

I know I can block an athlete, but I wish I could do more.  Strava has people who overdo it and give kudos to everybody.  This is information I don't need or want.  I would like the ability to remove this person from ever appearing on my screen.  Facebook has this.  Strava could even replace the name with "Blocked user" or something.  Seems very simple to implement.

I second this, though I block people (and only rarely) for far more serious infractions than passing out kudos excessively.  I wouldn't mind seeing the person's name listed on club leaderboards, segment leaders, etc., but what I definitely DON'T want to see is their comments on the workouts of others we mutually follow or be notified when those comments are posted.  Similarly, I would not want to see their comments in club discussion threads.  This is how it works on Facebook and other social platforms, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Strava can enhance their existing blocking capabilities to be more in line with "best practices".

Exactly.  It is actually more serious than that.  I just didn't want to make it about this, but the inaction by Strava forces me too.  There is a racist person who has followed hundreds of my friends, and gives kudos (probably by autobot) and comments to everyone.  I have another friend who was sexually assaulted by someone on Strava.  WHY CAN'T WE BLOCK THEIR NAME FROM APPEARING ANYWHERE ON STRAVA TO AT LEAST JUST US?  The constant reminders make us want to get off this platform.

I would like that too. I think the comments are gone now from a blocked user, but I can still see if they have given Kudos. I don't want to see that either. Blocked persons should be completely deleted from your account. Could Strava please do that? And what about my comments? If I was the one to block, they can't block me. Can they see my comments????

If I block someone, I don't want to see if they have given Kudos to a mutual friend. And I don't want the blocked person see if I have given Kudos. That is how it works on fb too. Could you please make Strava work this way too? I don't want to see a blocked persons name anywhere and I don't want them to see mine either, even if they can't block me back (because that is not possible, when I block first). I hope to hear from you.
